    Mark Riley The Intersection S6 Ep6 Uvalde Texas. Mass murders in the US will never end. Trump

    Uvalde, Texas. It’s a name most Americans had never heard of until last week.

The mythology surrounding the nation’s gun culture will never change. It's deeply embedded in America’s psyche and makes the right to own firearms a human right that must remain inviolate at all costs.
